The Auschwitz Museum
Here's the Auschwitz-Birkenau museum, as it appears to us: vestiges, ruins, traces. Some barbed wires, some barracks, some birches. A museum without any works of art, a cemetery without any graves, a Unesco listed site, yet without any trace of heritage. Thousands of visitors are coming here every day in numbers and from all around the world, without really knowing what they're looking for.
